Co-Principal Viola 24 hr tour diary

Wed 14 Dec 2016

Our co-principal Violist Max Mandel blogs from Rotterdam on the Bach Christmas Oratorio tour.  A blow by blow account of the 1st 24 hours:

We’ve already had a week of rehearsals and concerts of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio  so it doesn’t feel like the usual beginning of a tour where you’re not sure how it’s going to go. Instead we feel like quite a close group already, in part thanks to Maestro Masaaki Suzuki’s generous spirit. He’s the kind of director who is very insistent on what he wants from the music but the way he gets after it never feels like nagging. His humility and endless enthusiasm for the music has made the project a joy for everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a group so eager to get on a plane first thing in the morning.
